How can a personal injury affect your life?

Every day, thousands of people are involved in an accident that wasn’t their fault. From slip and falls to injuries as a result of poor safety measures, the effects can be life-changing.

If you find yourself in a similar situation, you may be considering processing a claim to gain the compensation you deserve. In this blog, we explain how a personal injury can affect your life.


Depending on the severity of your injury, it could pose a serious burden to your financial situation. The biggest impact is the loss of income you may experience due to extended time off work and if your injuries are long-term this will put a huge strain on your family’s budget or ability to provide for yourself. Furthermore, the cost of prescriptions, medical care, taxis to the hospital, child care and other similar services are all additional expenses that can be difficult to cope with.


Personal injury claims can be filed for short-term and long-term injuries – it only takes one accident to change your body permanently. There is a whole range of physical symptoms you may experience such as your ability to sit, stand or even walk – not to mention any cuts and scarring once everything has healed.


It can be very hard to comprehend your personal injury and the changes you will have to make to adapt. It’s not uncommon for people to develop physiological problems as a result of their physical injury, however, this type of trauma is much harder to quantify. You may also suffer emotionally due to the additional stress you are and under, such as worries about money, or post-traumatic suffering directly related to the accident itself.
